These places will be allocated on a first-come first served basis. Please contact  fiona.mccurdy@scottishtheatre.org with your details to request a free place on this training. 

Carbon Literacy is an awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions on an individual, community and organisational basis. The climate emergency is no longer a future concern, but something that is affecting and changing our lives in the here and now.   

This particular training has been developed to focus on the theatre industry, while simultaneously covering the science and economics which led us to the current situation.   

The training consists of a full day of learning, delivered in person, and includes group discussions across organisations and departments about how we prepare for the effects of the climate emergency on our work, and what we as an industry can do to mitigate those effects and reduce our ecological footprint.  

This session is led by Jennifer Talliefor, Jennifer is a production manager and certified Carbon Literacy trainer.

This training has been accredited by the Carbon Literacy Project, and as such meets all the criteria for learners to be certified by that body. Certification by the CLP confers a meaningful and robust award which has been rolled out to over 43,000 learners in 18 different nations. 

Tea, coffee and lunch are included within this session.
